Atenveldt LoI dated 2017-03-25

ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS

Letter of Intent

25 March 2017, A.S. LI

Unto Andrewe Laurel; Alys Pelican; Cormac Wreath; and the commenting Members of the College of Arms,

Vernal Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

The Atenveldt College of Heralds requests the consideration and registration of the following names and armory with the College of Arms.

Unless specifically stated, the client will accept any spelling and grammar corrections; all assistance is appreciated.

This constitutes most (no, really!) of the submissions accepted at the Estrella XXXII Consultation Table. While I'm always grateful (and surprised) by the patience and understanding of the folks who use the the Table, I'm even more thankful for the heralds who spend hours (and hours)and days (and days) on the other side of the Table, answering all sorts of questions and comments for the very new client and for the "old-timer" people who drop in - it cannot be done without you, and I hope you know that and how much I treasure you.

Just so you know, the Honourable Honour Grenehart served as head of Heralds' Point for Wednesday and Thursday; she cheerfully stayed shackled to the Table even after I showed up for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday hours. The Table was assisted by James of the Lake (Furison Pursuivant), Sorcha inghen Chon Mhara (Parhelium Deputy), Symond Bayard le Gris, Seamus mac Riain (Black Boar Pursuivant), Beverly FitzAlan de Stirkelaunde, Caylye Gaspur, and Colm Kile of Lochalsh and Tymothy Smythson.

1: Adelaide Duval - New Name & New Device

Per bend sinister argent and vert, three roses purpure and a dagger bendwise sinister inverted argent.

<Adelaide> appears at p. 224 in "Sommaire de l'histoire des François," Nicolas Vignier, published in 1579 (http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k123210f/f249" ). Also noted in the May 2012 LoAR for Adelaide of Alyngton, which states: "...the Latin spellings Adalhaidis and Adalheidis are both used, as is the vernacular spelling Adaleide. This is sufficient to give the submitter the benefit of the doubt regarding the plausibility of this spelling at an earlier time." http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/05/12-05lar.html

<Duval> is a 16th C. surname found in "Sixteenth Century Norman Names," Cateline de la Mor, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/cateline/norman16.html.


2: Aed Mac Eochagaín - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language most important.

The name is Irish Gaelic. <Aed> is a masculine given name dated 578 through 1594 ("Index of Names in Irish Annals: Áed / Aodh," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Aed.shtml).

<Mac Eochagaín> is found in Irish Names and Surnames, Patrick Woulfe, "son of Eochagán" (a diminutive of Eochaidh), http://www.libraryireland.com/names/mace/mac-eochagain.php.

As a potential conflict noted by OSCAR, <Aedh mac Eoghain>, this should be clear for sound by addition of a syllable in <Aed Mac Eochagaín>.


3: Apollonia Kautz - New Name & New Device

Gules, a polypus argent, on a point pointed Or three apples one and two gules.

The name is German. <Apollonia> Dieterich has a birthdate of 1620 in Neyenhausen, Germany, Batch C94091-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJ22-KRS).

<Kautz> is a surname with a christening date of 1598 for Sibilla Kautz in Stuttgart, Wurttemberg, Germany, Batch C00441-2 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NHBV-ZZK). It is also the client's legal surname.


4: Aurora Rothais - New Name & New Device

Azure, a rose argent and a demi-sun issuant from base, on a chief Or seven mullets three and four sable.

<Aurora> is the client's legal given name; documentation is forwarded to Laurel.

<Rothais> is an English byname dated to 1086 in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 383 s.n. Rose.

The client specifically asked for seven mullets on the chief. While this is typically blazoned as an unnumbered semy, this follows the blazon for

Elana Blakefenn's badge, as Argent, a mullet voided and interlaced within and conjoined to an annulet vert, in chief seven paw prints three and four sable. (November 2009).


5: Beth Drache - New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in June of 2015, via Atenveldt.

Old Item: Beth of Granite Mountain, to be released.

The woman <Beth> Green has a christening date of October 1544 in Hartford, Huntington, England, Batch C16869-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NK2M-HZK).

<Drache> is an English surname dated to 1066 for Leuing Drache, in R&W, 3rd edition, s.n. Drake. p. 141. It is also registered to Rustand Drache, the client's legal husband.


6: Brando Coradini - New Name & New Device

Per pale azure and argent, two wolves combattant counterchanged, on a chief triangular sable a sheaf of rapiers inverted proper.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound ((as submitted)) most important.
Culture (16th C. Italy) most important.

The name is Italian. <Brando> is masculine given name found 20 times in "Italian Names from the Online Tratte of Office Holders 1282-1532," Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/italian/tratte/); it is dated to between 1406-1519 inclusive, http://cds.library.brown.edu/projects/tratte/search/personinfo.php.

<Coradini> is a surname found in "Surnames from a 16th-Century Italian Armorial," Coblaith Muimnech (http://www.coblaith.net/Names/ItSur/default.html).

There was some comment on the size of the rapiers, but given the limitations of a chief triangular, the client has done the best he could.


7: Canaan Falconer - New Name & New Device

Or, a stag's head cabossed proper within a torc sable.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning (Canaan is said to mean "protector of honor") most important.

<Canaan> Bennet has a christening date of 1599 at St. Mary, Whitechapel, Stepney, London, England Batch C00629-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N6Z5-SXQ).

Edward <Falconer> has a christening date of 1579 at Barrow-Upon-Humber, Lincoln, England Batch C02689-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N6Z5-SXQ).


8: Cora Boyle - New Name & New Device

Per pale ployé throughout azure and Or, two Celtic crosses and a sheaf of arrows counterchanged.

The name is English. <Cora> is a feminine given name dated to 1598 (christening date) in Holsworthy, Devon, England, Batch C05113-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JWX8-NQD).

<Boyle> is dated to 1340-1450 and 1378 in Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, s.n. Boyle, Boyles, p. 58.

This line of division was registered as recently as the April 2016 LoAR, to Rahil Isfahani.


9: Darius al-Gafūr - New Name & New Device

Vert, a wolf's head erased contourny argent and a point pointed Or.

No major changes.

The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names shows 10 people named Δαρεῖος. This Greek name usually rendered in Latin as Darius or Dareus.

<Al-Gafūr>, "discoverer," is found in "Arabic Names from al-Andalus: Masculine Bynames Found in al- Andalus (nisba and laqab)," Juliana de Luna, https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/juliana/alandalus/mascnick.html.

The client will be advised to make the wolf's head larger, to take more advantage of the field area.


10: Dominic de Grae - New Name & New Device

Vert, an owl stooping argent, on a chief wavy Or a moon in her plentitude azure between two mullets vert.

<Dominic> is an English masculine name, entering popular use with the saint's name and his Order's creation (S. Dominic, 1170-1221), Withycombe, 3rd edition, p. 85.

<Grae> is dated to 1572 in an English marriage record for Harriet Grae (Batch M05840-2, https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKG5-MQ1)

We're not sure if the owl would be facing the viewer, as it is in its default orientation, but it's a lot more identifiable if it is. The client has no objection to having it as an owl stooping gardant.


11: Donwenna Dwn - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2006, via Atenveldt.

Per chevron gules and sable, three walnuts and a Catherine wheel Or.

Old Item: Per chevron gules and sable, three walnuts Or and a triskelion arrondi argent., to be released.

It was suggested in the Letter of Presentation that the blazon be modified to Per chevron gules and sable, in chief three walnuts in fess and in base a Catherine wheel Or.


12: Eirikr Stjarna - New Name & New Device

Argent, three empty embroiderers quills in pall inverted gules lipped sable.

The name is Old Norse, with all elements in Geirr Bassi's The Old Norse Name. <Eirikr> is a male given name, p. 9.

<Stjarna>, "star," is found on p. 28.

The name of the charges are found in the armory of Bricia de Neubold, http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2007/07/07-07lar.html . There was a question of tincturing them, and Michael Gerard Curtememoire suggested this. Overall, this is a nice and simple design.


13: Eoghan MacIver - New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in July of 2016, via Atenveldt.

Old Item: William MacIver, to be released.

<Eoghan> is found in "Scottish Gaelic Given Names: For Men, Draft in Progress Edition," Sharon L. Krossa, with at least one example found of the name 1501-1600 (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/gaelicgiven/men.shtml#e).


14: Evelyn of Windale - New Name

No major changes.

<Evelyn> is the client's legal given name (a copy of her Arizona Identification Card is forwarded to Laurel). Evelyn Grace, a woman has a christening date of May 1598 in Saint Margaret, Westminster, London, England Batch P00160-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N5WX-793).

<Windale> is her shire of residence; the name was registered November 1998.

She will accept no Major Changes to the name. (The client is nine years old and is quite happy with this name formation.)


15: Ezekiel Crow - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2016, via Atenveldt.

Gules, on a triangle within and conjoined to an annulet argent a raven regardant sable.


16: Fíne Ingen Ui Cheallaigh - New Name & New Device

Vert, two swords crossed in saltire and on a chief argent, three wooden harps proper.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for Irish (Irish Gaelic).
Sound ("Fee-na Kelly") most important.

The name is Irish Gaelic. <Fíne> is Old Irish Gaelic, dated 800 and 805 in "Index of Names in Irish Annals: Fíne," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (http://www.medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Fine.shtml).

<Cheallaigh> is the lenited genitive form of the male given name Ceallach (ibid., http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/Cellach.shtml) dated to 1251, 1278, 1281, 1371 and 1376.

The familial particles are probably more accurate as <inghean Uí>, the feminine form for clan affiliation bynames in Early Modern Gaelic, per Sharon Krossa's "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" (http://medievalscotland.org/scotnames/quickgaelicbynames/#clanaffiliationbyname).

This should be clear of the registered <Fíne ingen uí Scolaighe> should provide an additional syllable, making the names clear of conflict for sound under http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN3C2, and <Sco> is clear of <Chea> for both spelling and sound under the same rule.


17: Finna Ívarsdóttir - New Name

The name is Old Norse with elements found in "Viking Names found in Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html.

<Finna> is a female given name.

<Ívarr>is a masculine given name.

According to "A Simple Guide to Creating Old Norse Names," Aryanhwy merch Catmael (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/sg-viking.html), a patronymic construction for a woman is made as -rr → -rs, hence Ívarr → Ívarsdóttir.


18: Friedrich Swartzen Hut - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2015, via Atenveldt.

Lozengy argent and azure, a Capotain hat sable.

The previous submission, Lozengy bendwise azure and argent, a hat sable., was returned "for not being reliably blazonable, a violation of SENA A1C which requires that the submitted emblazon must be reproducible by a competent heraldic artist, with only normal heraldic variation, from the written blazon. Because hats have always shown a huge variety of shapes and size, we cannot define a "generic" standard hat. All registerable hats would need to be clearly defined so as to be reproducible from the blazon. Here the form of hat used was not documented to period."

This hat is called a <capatain> or <copotain>. It is a tall-crowned, narrow-brimmed, slightly conical hat, usually black, worn by men and women from the 1590s into the mid-seventeenth century in England and northwestern Europe. Earlier capotains had rounded crowns; later, like later capotains, the crown is flat at the top. It was especially associated with Puritan costume in England in the years leading up to the English Civil War. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capotain)

As is usual, Wikipedia leaves much to be desired (at least for accurate illustrations of headgear in this instance). Michael Gerard Curtememoire comes to the rescue with period paintings, with a portrait of James I in 1590, now in the National Gallery, http://www.oceansbridge.com/oil-paintings/product/87989/jamesiin1590, and ""1596 Mrs Jennyngs (b.1550-1551) in a capotain hat, Aged 45 British School," http://www.dulwichpicturegallery.org.uk/explore-the-collection/401-450/joan-alleyn/ . The website "It's About Time,"https://bjws.blogspot.com/search?q=capotain, demonstrates several capotains, and their inclusion in 1596 portraits (evidently 1596 was a banner year for the stylish capoain). Many thanks to Gerard for digging into the history of haberdashery!

19: Galen Peter Gilmore - New Name

The name is English. <Galen> Barrow has a christening date of 1636 in Coppenhall, Cheshire, England, GS film number 1655596 (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AGalen~%20%2Bbirth_place %3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1650~).

<Peter> is the name of a popular Christian saint, the first Pope of the Catholic Church (Reaney and Wilson, 3rd Edition, p. 347 s.n. Peter).

John <Gilmore> has a christening date of 1566 in Lambourn, Berkshire, England, Batch C02301-2 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NGS2-M8L).


20: Geraint de Grey - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2000, via Atenveldt.

Azure, a chevron Or between two mullets of eight point argent and a demi-sun issuant from base Or.


21: Ginevra of Sofia - New Name & New Device

Per pale gules and azure ermined Or, a lion Or and an orle argent..

<Ginevra> is found in "Feminine Given Names from the Online Catasto of Florence of 1427," Arval Benicoeur (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/arval/catasto/).

<Sofia> is the capital city of Bulgaria; after a long history, by the 14th C., it had fallen to Ottoman rule, while in the past, it had been handed over to various nations and rulers (http://bulgariatravel.org/en/object/234/sofia). A map in Gerard Mercator's 1595 map of Servia, Bulgaria, Romania shows the spelling as Soyfia (https://www.raremaps.com/gallery/detail/30284/Walachia_Servia_Bulgaria_Romania/Mercator.html).

SENA Appendix C allows for the mixing of Italian and Southern Slavic name elements.


22: Grimald the Faithful - New Name & New Device

Per pale Or and sable, two badgers rampant addorsed counterchanged marked argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language most important.
Culture most important.
Meaning (given name means "bald helmet") most important.

<Grimald> is dated to 1002-4 as a birthdate for Grimald de Plessis (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:SBS5-DNZ).

The descriptive <faithful> appears in the early 14th C. as "sincerely religious, devout, pious" (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=faithful).


23: Hallbiǫrn Freysgoði - New Name & New Device

Vert, three drinking horns fretted in triangle mouths inward and on a chief Or, four Futhark runes Algiz vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

The name is Old Norse. <Hallbiǫrn> is a masculine given name in "Viking Names found in Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html.

<Freysgoði>, "priest of Frey," is found in "Viking Bynames found in the Landnámabók," Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/vikbynames.html.

The blazon of the drinking horns is borrowed from charges seen in the badge of Grímólfr Skúlason, Gules, three drinking horns fretted in triangle mouths inward and on a chief argent a valknut between two ravens respectant sable., in September 2014. The same motif is blazoned simply as three drinking horns fretted in triangle: for Siiri Toivotytär, in April 2012, and for Wulfgar Wartooth, in June 2015.


24: Hannah Millican - New Name

<Hannah> Abbott has a christening date of 1622 in Honiton on Otter, Devon, England, Batch C05114-1 (https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3AHannah~%20%2Bbirth_plac e%3AEngland~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1200-1650~).

<Millican> comes from the Gaelic Maolagan, "little bald/shaven one" (a priest or monk), Reaney and Wilson, 3rd edition, p. 310, s.n. Millican (header), Millikin et al.


25: Hildegard Reinharet - New Name & New Device

Per fess vert and argent, a crescent argent and a domestic cat's face sable.

The name is German.

<Hildegard> Dietrich has a christening date of 1577 in Neuenstetten, Baden, Germany Batch C93303-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NC8P-HHY).

While there are a number of Rheinharts and Reinhards and similar names out there, I cannot find the spelling <Reinharet>. Reinharet is a family name for the client, but I found that it can be dated only to c. 1795 for the birth date of Barothia Reinharet, a German immigrant to the United States (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:27GP-F6G). Can anyone help out? (The client will be happy to choose a documented spelling if Reinharet comes up empty as an in-period version.)


26: Hürrem bint Osman al-Urduni - New Name Change & New Device Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in June of 2013, via Atenveldt.

Purpure, a pall inverted raguly between two lotus flowers in profile and a squirrel argent.

Old Item: Layla bint Suleiman al-Urduni, to be released.
Old Item: Purpure, a pall inverted raguly between two lotus flowers in profile and a peacock in his pride argent., to be released.

<Hürrem> was the wife of Suleiman the Magnificent and mother of Sehzade Mehmed, Mihrimah Sultan,Selim II, Sehzade Beyazit and Sehzade Cihangir (https://www.boutiqueottoman.com/who-is-hurrem-sultan-roxelana-hoyam-sultana/); the name is said to mean "laughing one" or "cheerful one" in Turkish.

<Osman> Gazi was the founding sultan of the Ottoman Empire (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osman_I). The name is found in "Muslim Names from 1455 Istanbul," Ursula Georges (http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/muslimNamesIstanbul.html).


27: Iðunn of the Citadel of the Southern Pass - Resub Name & Resub Device

Vert, two bones in saltire within a wingless wyvern in annulo argent.

The client's original name submission, <Iðunn of the Citadel>, was returned because she "used part of the registered branch name Citadel of the Southern Pass as her byname. In order to use the branch name allowance, she must use the entire branch name as registered. Unfortunately, changing the byname to of Citadel of the Southern Pass is a major change, which the submitter does not allow. Therefore, we must return this name."

The CoA continues: "ffride wullfsdotter documented the submitted form of the given name in Lind, s.n. Iðunn, dated to the 14th century. We note that the Viking Age form of this name is Iðunn, which is a 9th or 10th century name from Iceland found in the Landnámabók. The submitter may wish to know that of the Citadel can be constructed as a lingua Anglica form derived from the Middle English setadell or cytadell, dated to 1542 and 1545 in the Middle English Dictionary, respectively. Unfortunately, a 16th century English byname cannot be combined with a Scandinavian given name under Appendix C of SENA. However, Idunn is a 16th century English surname found in the FamilySearch Historical Records, so can be used as a given name. Thus, the English form Idunn of the Citadel is registerable. We are unable to make this change to register this name because the change in language is also a major change."

Ffride comments in the most recent LoP: "For completeness, here's what I'd written previously: Lind col. 620 sn. Iðunn includes a mention from the 14th c. Flateyjarbók, of <Idunn kona Þoralfs bonda>. Looking in the Guðbrandur and Unger edition, volume 1 p. 134 (https://books.google.com.au/books?id=UmgJAAAAQAAJ&vq=Idunn&pg=PA134#v=onepage&q=Idunn&f=false) we have <Þoralfr het bonda... ok het Jdunn kona hans>. Assuming that this isn't a normalised spelling, she could have <Jdunn> or <Idunn>, but it wouldn't be a normalised Old Norse/"Viking Age" spelling, nor would it have her desired sound of "Id-toon"."

The client's original device submission, Argent, on a pale sable a bone argent, overall a wingless wyvern passant contourny regardant, its body entwined azure around the bone., was returned "for violating SENA A3E1, which states "Charge groups must be arranged upon the field in a period fashion." This arrangement of an overall charge entwining a tertiary charge is not listed in Appendix J and would need to be documented before it could be accepted."

This is a redesign.


28: Isabella Cara - New Name Change

OSCAR NOTE: the old name was registered in July of 2002, via Atenveldt.

Old Item: Ceara inghean Chárthaigh, to be retained as an alternate name.

The name is Italian. <Isabella> is a female given name found in "Italian names from Imola, 1312," Sara L. Uckelman (http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/italian/imola.html).

Marchetto <Cara>, 1470-1520, was a composer and a court musician for the Gonzaga family (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/marchetto-cara-mn0001178620/biography).

The client desires a female name. If this is registered, please retain her currently-registered name as an alternate.


29: James Shinner - New Name & New Device

Vert, a compass rose Or, on a chief argent three oak leaves vert.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

This spelling version of the male given name <James> is seen c. 1240 (Withycombe, 3rd edition, pp. 170-2, s.n. James).

James <Shinner> (male) has a marriage date of 1589 in Marytavy, Devon, England, Batch no. M05139-1 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2J1-SYT).


30: Joseph Grünewald of York - New Alternate Name

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 1995, via Atenveldt.

Iosif Syl'vestrov

The new name is Russian. Elements are found in "A Dictionary of Period Russian Names," Paul Wickenden of Thanet (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/).

<Iosif< is a masculine given name, the Russianization of Joseph; it is dated to 1541.

<Sil'vestr> is a masculine name dated to 1574; the patronymic would be <Sil'vestrov>. The variant spelling Syl'vestrov matches that of Catharin Syl'vestrova, registered June 2014.


31: Julian Faith McCabe - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2000, via Atenveldt.

32: Kathryn De Feuer - New Name & New Device

Vert, in pale within a stag's antler conjoined to itself in annulo and a goblet, within the antler a rose, all argent.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Client requests authenticity for English and Flemish languages/culture.

<Kathryn> is the client's legal given name. It seems to be a reasonable variant on Katheryn, dated to 1570 in "Feminine Given Names in

A Dictionary of English Surnames: Katharine," Talan Gwynek (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Katharine).

<De Feuer> is found in "Flemish Names from Bruges," Luana de Grood, dated 1400-1550 (https://www.s-gabriel.org/docs/bruges/). (Most likely the de would be written in lower case.)

Since French and English and compatible languages, I hope that English and Flemish are compatible as well and elements can be combined into a single name.


33: Kidala Boskov - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.

The name is Russian, with both elements from "A Dictionary of Period Russian Names," Paul Wickenden of Thanet, http://heraldry.sca.org/names/paul/.

<Kidala> is a byname, dated to 1618 for craftsman Grishka Kidala; can someone justify this as a given name?

<Boskov> is a patronymic dated to 1498, from the Bos variant Bosko, s.n. Bos.


34: Marcus de Grae - New Name

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No changes.

<Marcus Togghyll> has a christening date of 1567 in Calne, Wiltshire, England, Batch C32082-5 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N6MC-BL7).

Azure, a bat-winged mermaid erect to sinister between flaunches argent.

The primary charge was enlarged from the design in the Letter of Presentation to make it more identifiable.

The name is Mongolian, and both elements are found in "Mongolian Naming Practices," Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/mongolian_names_marta.html). <Occadai> is a variant translation of Ogedai; the byname means "wild."

41: Swetiue de Torleton' - New Name & New Device

Or, two elephants statant respectant sable maintaining in their raised trunks a heart gules.

Submitter desires a feminine name.
Client requests authenticity for 13th C. England.

<Swetiue> is dated to 1207 in "Feminine Given Names in A Dictionary of English Surnames: Swetiva," Talan Gwynek (https://www.s-gabriel.org/names/talan/reaney/reaney.cgi?Swetiva). ffride comments: "Apparently Swetiue is from The Anglo-Saxon Heritage in Middle English Personal Names: East Anglia 1100-1399 and with a bit of digging I think their source was the Pipe Rolls, with:

"Leciam filiam Swetiue petentem."(https://books.google.com.au/books?id=czYIAQAAMAAJ&q=%22Swetiue%22&dq=%22Swetiue%22&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0a hUKEwi-pNPA17nSAhXijVQKHUjcDB8Q6AEIIzAC). I'd strongly suspect it's declined in Latin, so the nominative would be Swetiua?"

42: Uilliam ua Briain - New Name & New Device

Quarterly argent and sable, a cross gules between four snakes nowed counterchanged.

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Sound most important.

The name is Early Modern Irish Gaelic. <Uilliam> is a given name dating from 1302 to 1577.

<Briain> is the genitive form of Brian, dating from 1258 to 1582 ("Index of Names in Irish Annals: Masculine Given Names," Mari Elspeth nic Bryan, http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Masculine/).

I believe that the clan affiliation particle ought to be <Ó>.

It will be suggested to the client that the snakes should be centered in their own little quarters.


43: Yvonnet le Bouer - New Name & New Device

Michael Gerard Curtmoire notes: This is not a cauldron, which hangs by a bail without feet, per http://mistholme.com/dictionary/pot-cauldron/, which the bail must be visible (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/07/15-07lar.html#146) and would badly crowd this chief. Rather, it is a three-footed pot. For the official statement, see http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/11/12-11cl.html#7, "From Wreath: Blazoning Fun -- Kitchen Pots and Pans".
